The Democrats have brought back wasteful, porkbarrel, earmarks and have stuff Joe Biden’s obscene $1.4 trillion federal budget with 4,000 of them totaling $10 billion in waste.

politics watchers may remember the fights over earmarks from the 1990s and 2000s when Republicans were eventually successful in ending the practice, saving the federal treasury billions.

But under Joe Biden, this monumental waste of tax money is back… and no one is surprised.

Per Just the News:

There were about 4,000 earmarks worth between $8-$10 billion slipped inside the $1.5 trillion spending bill Congress passed, according to Republican lawmakers.

Indiana Republican Sen. Mike Braun’s office compiled a 367-page document detailing the earmarks that were tucked into the bill that passed on Thursday night less than 48 hours after it was released publicly.

Among the projects on the list, there were 142 earmarks linked to Senate Majority Leader Schumer, Braun said.

On Twitter, Braun highlighted the earmark requested by New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman totaling $496,000 for “Promoting Health Equity and Affordable Swim Access through Yonkers YMCA Pool Improvements.”

Just the News has a longer list of this massive waste.

But suffice to say, the wasteful pork spending in this budget is bigger than most whole federal budgets of the past.

That is what Democrats are doing to this country, folks.
